Court revives suit over CIA drone records

Agency must give fuller response to ACLU challenge

(Reuters) – In a rebuke of government secrecy, a federal appeals court ruled on Friday that the CIA must give a fuller response to a lawsuit seeking the spy agency’s records on drone attacks.

The CIA’s claim that it could neither confirm nor deny whether it has any drone records was inadequate because the government, including President¬†Barack Obama¬†himself, has clearly acknowledged a drone program, the court said.

The ruling was unanimous from a three-judge panel of the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
